A barn full of warbirds

This crusty gentleman coordinated the aerial stunts for the 1969 film Battle of Britain -- and he took the planes as payment! Here he is with one of his two Bf-109 Messerschmitts, the lead fighter of the German air force from its intervention in the Spanish Civil War almost to the end of the Second World War. The planes sat in a Texas barn all these years, but now have been sold to American and European collectors.
